. hello. thank you for joining us. i'm jc hayward. following their first debate, president obama and governor mitt romney are back on the campaign trail today. mr. romney will be in virginia, and the president is going to deliver remarks in colorado and
12:01 pm
wisconsin. both candidates traded views on the economy and domestic issues last night in denver. tara mergener has more. >> reporter: mitt romney set the debate tone early. >> under the president's policies, middle-income americans have been buried. >> reporter: energetic and aggressive, romney slammed the president's economic record and laid out his own plan. >> there be will no tax cut that adds to the deficit. i want to underline that no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> reporter: but the president repeatedly insisted that romney is calling for $8 trillion in tax cuts and spending that cannot be paid for without adding to the deficit or burdening more middle-income americans. >> it's math. it's arithmetic. >> reporter: the. also criticized his -- the president also chris sitees the -- criticized hid cal letter without -- his challenger of not providing more.
12:02 pm
the obama campaign is conceding that the extensive preparation paid off at a time when he needed a lift. many viewers saw a president not at the top of his game. >> he seemed a bit nervous for some reason. almost some questions threw him off and rit romney seemed to throw him off a bit as well. >> reporter: not everyone is giving the win to romney. >> obama had -- he was more comfortable with his ideas. romney was working a bit too hard trying to convince people because he's down in the polls. >> reporter: the president and mitt romney square off again two more times. the next debate is a town hall style event in new york. tara mergener for cbs news, the white house. >> we sampled some reaction to the debate some our facebook page. it said the problem with the debate is they're going past their time limit and mitt romney wasn't clear what he would do for the economy. so for me it's a tie. kia said not only did romney
12:03 pm
insult educators, he also insulted the poor. obama wasn't a big winner tonight either. he lacked an aggression. so overall i think it was a fair fight. you can leave your comments by going to the candidates can get carried away sometimes when they are explaining their positions. so did mitt romney or president owe bottom ma stretch the truth -- president obama stretch the truth when they were talking about taxes. derek mcginty watched the debate with our partners at "u.s.a. today." >> reporter: there was a lot to talk about and a lot of facts out there, especially this $5 trillion in tax cuts. president obama says that's what romney wants to do. romney says not me. take a listen. >> governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of the extension of the bush tax cuts. that's another trillion dollars. and $2 trillion in additional military spending that the military hasn't asked for. >> i don't have a $5 trillion
12:04 pm
tax cut. i don't have a tax cut of a scale that you're talking about. my view is that we ought to provide tax relief to people in the middle class. >> reporter: all right. two contending points there. only one of them can be right. paul singer, the fact checker here tonight, political editor at "u.s.a. today." who's right? >> mitt romney does have tax cuts in his plan. the issue is it really a $5 trillion tax cut because what he says is if it will -- says but it will make more revenue because it creates more jobs. those people then start paying taxes. so it doesn't actually cut revenues to the government. but there are cuts in the tax rate that individuals pay. i'm not sure how to count whether that is or is not a tax cut. >> reporter: okay. bottom line, $5 trillion not $5 trillion or there is no bottom line? >> the romney-ryan plan has never specified exactly what the loopholes they will close or how the math adds up, but
12:05 pm
they say it is not a $5 trillion tax cut because it has these other residual benefits. >> we have more fact checks on our website and you can hear more from the candidates themselves. in other news, the campaign of john delaney says that he made a mistake by not voting in two elections in the last six years. delaney is a democrat. he's running for congress in maryland. his campaign admits that he did not vote in the 2006 general election or the 2010 democratic primary. he is running against incumbent republican rosco bartlet. this campaign raises questions whether delaney is trustworthy, according to the republicans. clues raised about the disappearance of a senior
12:06 pm
missing. >> police have a new clue in the search for a man who is groping women and also girls in springfield, virginia. we'll have those stories when we come back. krystal conwell : we see a lot of problems with the... number of students that we have. resources. materials. things that the children need... on a day-to-day basis. anncr: question seven will help. the department of legislative services says question seven... will mean hundreds of millions of dollars... for schools...from gaming revenues that would have... gone to other states. and independent audits will guarantee the money... goes where it's supposed to. krystal conwell: i think people should vote for question... seven because i think it will be a great benefit to children.
12:07 pm
12:08 pm
police have released a composite sketch of a man accused of fondling teenagers and women in fairfax county. the suspect is described as being hispanic, in his 30s. in one of the incidents, a 40- year-old woman said she was walking along hibbling avenue in springfield when she was grabbed and groped. police believe that she is the fifth victim. no one has required medical attention. police in fairfax county are searching for a senior from woodson high school. he's been missing since monday.
12:09 pm
kristin fisher sat down with his parents at their home in fairfax this morning. >> it wasn't until after football practice when he was overdue in coming home that i became concerned. >> reporter: that was monday evening. mike glenn has been searching for his son ever since. 17-year-old bryan glenn, a senior at woodson high school. >> it's difficult. it's really tough. we don't have enough leads to help us develop an opinion on what the likely outcome is here. >> reporter: bryan was last seen here at woodson high school around 7:15 monday morning. his car was found less than 24 hours later at a park just two miles away. inside his car, police found their next big clue. a receipt from a dunkin donuts ju up the road. >> it's -- as a parent i would like to think i've got a 17- year-old son who's experimented and something went awry and he's trying to figure out how to -- how to deal with the
12:10 pm
shame and come home. i'd like to think that's the case. i'm praying that that's the case. >> reporter: he's also praying that surveillance footage from that dunkin donuts will show whether or not bryan was alone. police in fairfax county are calling the case unusual but not suspicious. detectives spent yesterday searching the area for clues and they'll be back at it again today. >> we know bryan's out there. and we want him to -- we want to know he's going to be okay. we're going to get him home. >> reporter: in fairfax, kristin fisher, 9news now. >> if you know anything about bryan glenn's whereabouts, please call the fairfax county police. their telephone number is area code 703-691-2131. the wife of illinois congressman jesse jackson, jr. says he may not go back to work before the election. but that's not expected to prevent his reelection next
12:11 pm
month. the democrat has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. he has not been to his congressional office in washington since june, and he has not campaigned in his chicago district at all. his wife says that he would like to appear in public, but he is still recovering. >> i know that he is anxious to do so, but he is also under a doctor's order to stay very calm, very quiet, and he's going to do that. >> cbs news reports that jackson has put his washington home on the market. his wife says the family needs the money in order to pay medical bills that are not covered by congressional insurance. returning our attention now back to last night's presidential debate. roll call calls it a walky debate. the question stands, do you think it will sway voters? with me now is roll call's
12:12 pm
white house correspondent steven dennis. what is your opinion? >> well, i think it's definitely something that gives mitt romney's campaign new life. coming into this debate, his campaign was really reeling from several disastrous weeks. this 47% video. if you look at the polling, people thought that -- especially in the swing states like ohio that he was out for the rich, that he was -- these attacks that the president has been putting on the r, nonstop in these swing states that he's going to raise taxes onthe middle class and give to the wealthy had been hitting and have been hurting him badly combined with that video. so he came out punching and he came out trying to puncture that caricature, running to the middle on a lot of issues and on taxes really trying to hammer home this idea that he's not going to cut taxes for the rich, that he's going to cut taxes for the middle class, and the problem for him still that he hasn't yet shown how he can pay for it.
12:13 pm
the president tried to sort of puncture that a little bit, but i think the president just appeared tired and looked down a lot and didn't seem to be delivering his punches with the fervor that mitt romney has. >> are you surprised by the president's performance? >> i think a lot of people were surprised. i think a lot of his supporters were surprised. if you see the reaction from his supporters on twitter and on tv, they were basically saying, you know, i'm stunned that he didn't use the 47% video and go after mitt romney's comments about people being dependent on the government and considering themselves victims and wanting handouts while the 53% are paying the freight. it was kind of odd that he didn't mention that. >> you think he thought it was overplayed because the media certainly had given it a lot of attention and he didn't want to come off as being someone who was beating up on his opponent?
12:14 pm
>> that may have played a part of it, but when you're getting punched and romney was coming out and punching early and punching often, if you don't counterpunch at some point in your debate, it's not good. the one thing that i think obama really did connect towards the end of the debate after romney was sort of saying well, i like parts of wall street reform, just not yours and i'm going to repeal obama care and replace it with something else. without a whole lot of specifics. and on the tax plan, obama said look, this is time and time again here is mitt romney saying he's going to do all these things and he won't tell you what his secret plans are. why is he keeping them a secret? is it because they're so good for the middle class. if they really were great tax plans that weren't going to hit the middle class, he could say how it's not going to hurt the middle class. he could say how he's going to
12:15 pm
regulate wall street and deal with pre-existing conditions. you're seeing fact checkers today and you'll see the obama campaign hammering things home like the preconditioned issue where romney doesn't have anything dealing with people who have cancer and are uninsurable today. the overall romney campaign is saying well, you know, we'll figure out a way for the states to deal with that issue. that's not necessarily a solution today for millions of people who have very serious health problems. that's going to be something that obama didn't really attack yesterday. i think you're going to see a much more vigorous obama in the future. >> in the second and third debate? >> his people -- you know today his people, michele obama, everybody else are going to be telling him and getting in his face that he's got to be more aggressive in the next debate. i think if he watches it, he'll realize, you know, you can't be
12:16 pm
looking down at the podium, and he's got to be much more aggressive. >> all right. steven, thank you so much for being here. we'll be looking. we'll have you come back and give us your analysis again. we're going to take a break and when we come back, howard has the forecast. >> jc, after a gloomy start, sunshine starting to come out here in d.c. so the afternoon looking better. the rain has been good in some respects on the allergy count. all the pollen levels are low. the trees, grass, the weeds. but the mold spores like it moist. they're high. i'll be back with the seven-day forecast looking toward the weekend whether we return.
